Thank You, Jana

Little sweetie Jana over at The Little Black Book is sharing an award with me. Do you know her? She's a riot. She just got back from two week vacation so she is feeling spunky and funky. Thanks, Jana.

As usual, the same rules apply as always, just answer the questions, make up ten of your own, and pass the award on to six favorite bloggers of your own.

The questions for me to answer:

{1} Favorite childhood memory?
When I threw a mouse into bathtub when my mom was taking a bath.
{2} Favorite movie?
The Greatest Game Ever Played. Watched the movie first, then had to buy the book.
{3} Paris or London?
Paris, have been to both places.
{4} Sarcasm or Humor?
Humor; however, I can dig a little sarcasm now and then, giving and taking.
{5} The Beach or the Hills?
The hills. Always. Mountains. Trees.
{6} Dawn or dusk?
Dawn. I am definitely a morning person. Love watching the sunrise.
{7} Reading or something else?
Reading, reading and more reading. Read every day and have a book with me at all times.
{8} Favorite yesteryear movie star?
Bob Hope favorite male star, in fact, I have a post up soon honoring him.
Katharine Hepburn favorite female star, will be writing a post about her soon.
{9} Favorite snacks?
Nachos. Cheese and crackers. Potato skins with the works. I'm the queen of snacks, can make a deelishus meal out of snacks.
{10} What does getting an award mean to you?
In this context, getting this award means that someone is showing appreciation for the stuff in my little hippie blog. Makes me smile. Can you see the huge smile???

My ten questions for the blogs I pick are these astute proposals to stir up discussion:

1. What is one thing you do not want to write about in your blog?
2. If you were able to travel anyplace for a month, where would you want to go?
3. What is your favorite book reading genre?
4. How old do you have to be to consider yourself really old?
5. What part of blogging do you enjoy most?
6. If you were looking for a roommate, what is your ideal roomie?
7. What does the word spiritual mean to you?
8. How many siblings do you have?
9. Have you ever been in a car accident?
10. Do you have a pet?

Now to hand this on to six others, I choose:

Life Is What You Make It
Life With Kaishon
Scarlet Blue
Ronda's Wonderland
Carb Tripper

(snicker) my word verification is "whine"

Oh blimey! Thank you very much! I haven't done one of these for an age.

Ocean Girl said...

You had me at childhood memory.

Congratulations Technobabe

Charlie said...

A beautiful-looking award it is, and well deserved.

And I thought letting a garter snake loose in my Mom's rock garden was bad ...

Big Dave T said...

Nice looking award. Kind of surreal in its appearance. Surprising choice for a movie though. I didn't even know what it was until I looked it up on the Internet Movie Database.

Kulio said...

Mouse in the bathtub, YEAH!!! haha

Deidra said...

It took me awhile to get over the shock of number one. That was great!

Congratulations on your well-deserved award!

Unknown Mami said...

I hope my daughter never throws a mouse into the tub while I'm in it or even when I'm not in it!

secret agent woman said...

Good answers I love snack meals. In fact, in my family we call them snicky-snack meals.

heartinsanfrancisco said...

Congratulations on this well-deserved award! I loved learning more about you, and the questions you created for your six people are great - I look forward to reading their responses.

But where did you get the mouse? Was he an illegal tenant in your home, or a pet? Did he survive his bath?

LadyFi said...

Lovely award - congrats!

And you threw a MOUSE into the bath when your mum was in it? Was it alive or dead? And what did your mum do? Please tell this story...

Julie said...

Congratulations! And again, it is well deserved, Technobabe. You are much loved and respected in the blogging world (and the real world).

I love it when you post "tidbits" about yourself. The frog in the bathtub is hilarious. I can't wait to read your Katharine Hepburn post. She rocks!

Thanks for the links and introduction to interesting people. I just took a peek, and they all look great. I got a big kick out of the pictures of kids on Life With Kaishon. Your questions are good ones, too. They already have me thinking.

Sunshine said...

Congratulations you are well deserved peron to take this award.. I love your blog and glad to be part of your blog! Little things we share becomes really meaningful of life and its stays there for you to just go back to memories and realize how was the life..!

God Bless You
Love sunshine

The Absence of Alternatives said...

Katharine Hepburn. Would love to read about that post when you publish it. I love these questions. Amongst them, my favorite is "What is one thing you do not want to write about in your blog?" That could probably be a long book for many bloggers. :-)


Robert the Skeptic said...

I've never understood the purpose of making these lists... unless they are somehow tied to winning prize money.

r garriott said...

These are marvelous questions...!
Very astute, very imaginative.

beth said...

i love that we get to know you a bit better.....

but seriously the hills ?

i'll never see you because i'll be at the beach :)

Mrs4444 said...

Paris AND London? Luckyyyy!

Gonna have to work on NOT eating a snack now.

God bless you for not picking me, haha.

Eileen said...

Congratulations on your award! Interesting post! Nice to get to know more about you.

I'm a big snack person too! Would rather snack while sitting on the couch rather than eat a 'sit-down-at-the-table' type meal any day!
